A few different things clue you in that all is well in the hive. If the queen is laying, those babies have to be fed continuously, which means a continual flow of pollen into the hive. I've never been able to see anything in those very wee back legs. So today, I put on my glasses, a long sleeved white shirt and just sat with the camera and stared. Those girlies did not disappoint.Who knew pollen came in so many colors and flavors.
Oh My JOY
It's seems with all of our current technology, personal pieces of snail mail are few and far between, and certainly seldom do I receive ones handmade with such care. I love it.
And the quote from a Mary Elizabeth Sangster on the back
"Never yet was a springtime when the buds forgot to bloom"
I stayed home all weekend and about worked myself to exhaustion, but the car is cleaned out, many shrubs trimmed, bunny cage clean, hives checked, seeds planted, chicky poo spread around, laundry done and on and on. I'm so grateful for the time, beautiful weather and a Handy Man to share it with. What did you do this weekend?
